"Pasadena Twinkling at Twilight", #pasadena #citylights #oilpainting #nocturne #laurawambsgans

It's been a long time since I hunted down a city light scene and just painted what I saw.  There is a museum show coming up in the Pasadena area that requires only images/sculpture of and from the San Gabriel Valley.  I wanted to paint something different then previous years and decided to look at the city from up on Angeles Crest Highway.  At the second turn out I had the perfect view and was fascinated how quickly the lights came on and the sky started to darken.  This painting is my perception of that fleeting moment at the end of the day.
